EDITOR’S NOTE: Don’t just remember history, learn from it

Michelle Marchante Editor in Chief of FIU Student MediaMichelle Marchante/Editor-in-Chief

This edition of PantherNOW is all about remembrance from our first page recap of the University’s Holocaust and Genocide Awareness week to our Black History Month themed magazine.

In our magazine you’ll find content ranging from identity to women empowerment on pages 6 and 7.

The Black Female Development Circle, for example, is to help students build themselves up in an open and supporting space. You can learn more about them on page 7.

Our columnists also take on diversity in media. One of our writers believe that “Hollywood is finally beginning to listen” after last year’s #OscarsSoWhite Twitter trend.

Our other columnist, however, believes that while improvements are being seen, “the final line is still nowhere in sight.”

Another columnist is also concerned that our University is seeing an increase of anti-semitism in our population. You can find out why on page 10.

Our newspaper doesn’t just look back on the past, however, but also towards the future.

Our front page story focuses on the University’s “Next Horizon” campaign and our sports section profiles FIU’s rock climbing club. You’ll want to check it out on page 12.

And, for some fun news, rapper Kodak Black made a surprise visit to one of the dorms at the Modesto Maidique campus Friday night. Once you finish reading our front page story about the visit, check out our Instagram @panthernow to see a short video of his visit.
